The fact that there are too many lawyers in our country is a myth. No area of human activity manages without legal competence. The sphere of jurisprudence is represented traditionally by the activity of the law-enforcement authorities, law firms, notary public offices, judicature, and legal advice agencies.
The legal competence offers a key to success to the managers of all levels. The history is uncompromising: 25 of 50 American presidents were lawyers, the three last Russian state leaders, including our present president D. Medvedev and ex-president V. Putin are also representatives of the same profession. The demand for lawyers grows with the evolutional development of the society.
The intellectual game «Law Experts», which took place in IGUMO&IT on 19 of April 2011, united the teams of several Law Departments with a strong legal potential. The following Law Departments took part in this game:
the Law Department of the Financial University attached to the Government of the Russian Federation;
the Law Department of Moscow State Industrial University;
the Law Department of Moscow State University for the Humanities named after M. Sholokhov ;
the Law Department of the State Classical Academy named after Maymonid;
the Law Department of the Institute for the Humanities and IT.
Our team was represented by 3rd and 4th year students of the IGUMO Law Department.
The intellectual tournament was considered as a civil one, as far as it concerned civil legal relations. The questions related to the history of Law and different theoretical tasks required from students of the capital’ Law Departments not only profound knowledge of Law but also erudition, sharpness and logic. The students of the Law Departments of all universities did their best.
The IGUMO Law Department showed an excellent grounding of future specialists. The awarding places were distributed in the following way:
The 1st prize was given to the team of the Financial University attached to the Government of the Russian Federation;
The 2nd prize went to the team of the four-year students of IGUMO&IT;
The 3rd prize was awarded to the team of the third-year student of IGUMO&IT.
